General Questions

Q: Do you deliver every photo taken?

A: No we do not. Given that we take more than one photo for each pose, including test shots and duplicates. We select the best images from the session and deliver those images to our clients to select their images

Q: Which photographer will shoot my session?

A: Considering we are a single business owner, you will be meeting with the owner/photographer for your session. Don’t worry you’ll like him. He’s outgoing, energetic, and captures amazing images

Q: Does your studio do headshots, individual portraits, family portraits, newborn shoots, commercial photography, or other types of photography?

A: Yes we do! We offer portraits, graduations, family portraits, individual portraits, commercial headshots, and much more. Contact our studio manager for more information here

Q: What types of events do you cover?

A: I cover a wide range of events from small private events to large community events. Some of the events I had the pleasure of covering last year included; the Canada Day parade in Pouce Coupe, Mile Zero Cruisers Show N’ Shine, RibFest Dawson Creek, Dawson Creek Fall Fair (including the Fall Fair Parade) 

Q: What sports do you cover?

A: Currently I’ve only covered Speed Skating, but I hope to be able to capture different sports including hockey, basketball, volleyball, figure skating, and much more. 

Post-Production and Delivery Questions

Q: How long does it take to get my images for proofing?

A: We aim to have proofing completed for each client within a week of the session date. This all depends on our schedule and the events that are happening.

Q: What is proofing?

A: Each package comes with a certain number of images. Proofing is the process where the clients select their number of images (e.g. 30 images) and favorite them (that is how we know which images they want) Once we receive the email that this is complete, we edit those images for final delivery

Q: Can a client purchase the entire gallery or additional image?

A: Yes, we offer the entire gallery at a flat rate and a per-image rate if a client desires to have more than the allotted images. Please contact your photographer for more information on this

Q: When can I expect my images?

A: Once you have selected your images, we can normally have the final images completed within a couple of days, depending on our schedule and ongoing events. we always tell clients to expect to wait up to 2 weeks for processing.  

Q: Can I get RAW images?

A: No, our work is best viewed when the final product is delivered. Think if a chef would serve you a raw steak, we honestly want a cooked steak to our preference (does anyone like medium-rare)

Equipment Questions

Q: What type of camera/equipment do you use?

A: We aim to have excellent-quality images at affordable prices. A part of that commitment to our clients is that we don’t operate with top-of-the-line cameras. Our cameras still capture beautiful images in every scenario that we encounter. Click here to see our Photography Equipment

Q: Do you charge sales tax (GST/PST)?
